MEDFORD, Ore. — The Jackson County Sheriff's Office has announced several evacuation orders and notices for areas threatened by the multiple fires burning throughout Southern Oregon. According to the agency, announcements are usually preceded by deputies delivering the news door-to-door in the affected areas.

"Where can I go?"

A shelter for families and companion animals is being organized at Hanby Middle School in Gold Hill (806 6th Ave N, Gold Hill, OR 97525).

A temporary shelter for livestock is being organized at the Jackson County Expo. Please contact Linda Bacon at (541)226-1124, or Expo staff at (541)821-8406, if you need to make use of this resource.

"What do the evacuation levels mean?"

A Level 3 "GO" evacuation order means to leave the area immediately—do not stop to gather belongings.

This level means that you are in imminent danger. There may not be time for emergency personnel to respond in time to deliver this notice door-to-door, nor time for them to help save structures, belongings or livestock. You should be packed and ready to leave before this order is issued.

A Level 2 "BE SET" evacuation warning means that you must be prepared to leave at a moment's notice.

This level indicates there is significant danger to your area, and residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside of the affected area, or if choosing to remain, be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice.

Residents MAY have time to gather necessary items, but doing so is at their own risk.

A Level 1 "BE READY" evacuation notice means residents should be aware of the danger that exists in their area, monitor emergency services websites and local media outlets for information.

This is the time for preparation and precautionary movement of persons with special needs, mobile property and (under certain circumstances) pets and livestock.

If conditions worsen, emergency services personnel WILL MAKE EVERY ATTEMPT TO CONTACT YOU. You may be contacted via an emergency notification system.
